At Home in Freemansburg, West Virginia  (HC-7622C) At Home in Freemansburg, West Virginia (HC-7622C)
By Helen Hall Garrett and Betty Robinson Sorrentino. Freemansburg, represented by a very tiny dot on the map, has been called "home" by generations of central West Virginians. The people of Freemansburg are a unique blend of Appalachian culture and Scotch-Irish tradition. Loyal and steadfast to their homeland, many can trace their roots unbroken to the original founding fathers and mothers of the area. This account will reveal how Freemansburg evolved through many states: from an Indian hunting ground to a rugged new village of settlers to a thriving little town and finally to a quiet hamlet in the hills. The story includes the development of churches, schools, and businesses in the town, as well as an account of the homes and families that resided in them. Softback, 7.5" x 9", 214 pages.

Images of America: Lewis County (HC-7950JBO) Images of America: Lewis County (HC-7950JBO)
By Joy Gilchrist-Stalnaker & Bradley R. Oldaker. Since the first documented arrival of white men in its borders in 1769, Lewis County has morphed from a howling wilderness known simply as West Augusta, Virginia, to a major player in a hub of interstate highway transportation and a recreational area with a number of tourist destinations. Formed from Harrison County in 1816, Lewis County and its 17,003 citizens represent the best of central West Virginia. The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, Jackson's Mill, Stonecoal Lake, and Stonewall Jackson Lake define the county by their unique place in history. The county's native sons and daughters have been industrialists, U.S. senators, Civil War generals, and nationally recognized athletes. They have been the fabric that makes America the great country it is today: the ordinary, everyday citizen who lives life to its fullest potential while enduring whatever struggle fate sets before them. Coauthors Joy Gilchrist-Stalnaker and Bradley R. Oldaker each bring multiple talents to the project. Both are passionate about local history as recorded in word and image. Gilchrist-Stalnaker's talent is recording the story in written word. Oldaker's expertise is in the county's images. Images of America: Lewis County combines the best talents of both. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Anyone having any connection to Lewis County will thoroughly enjoy this new history. 127 pgs. Softbound.

Images of America: Tucker County (HC-7950CP) Images of America: Tucker County (HC-7950CP)
Cynthia A. Phillips. This volume tells the story of Tucker County's history through the visual records of its communities, families, and industries. Carved out of Randolph County, Virginia, in 1856, Tucker County's early history played out in the farming communities of the Cheat River Valley. Beginning in 1884, the shrill whistle of industrialist Henry Gassaway Davis's railroad, the West Virginia Central and Pittsburg, woke the area to dramatic changes. New towns like Davis, Thomas, and Parsons grew up and prospered in response to the developing nation's demand for lumber and coal. Author Cynthia A. Phillips brings together a collection of classic images from all corners of Tucker County. Featured prominently are the lasting images of the people and families who contributed to building these hometowns, the businesses, their schools, and churches. The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. 128 pgs. Softbound.

Abstracted and Annotated by Joy Stalnaker DeFazio, 260 pages chockfull of the facts and foibles of building one of the largest hand-cut blue sandstone buildings in the world. Building the Lunatic Asylum West of the Alleghenies tested the talents of the population in the tiny town of Weston where the roads were poor at best and the skills among its 800 souls were limited. Through the construction of what is now, in the 21st Century, a National Landmark, the town began to grow. From its earliest days, it defined our town. The hospital has since closed and is now owned privately, but it still is a defining characteristic of our town and Lewis County, West Virginia.

Summersville Pictorial History 1820-1991 (HC-7996C) Summersville Pictorial History 1820-1991 (HC-7996C)
By Carol Hughes Bell and Hilda Grose. For over 100 years the Nicholas Chronicle has recorded the Summersville area history in word and picture. Its notable publishers and editors have helped shape not only the town but the county. It is only fitting, then, that the visual image of Summersville's past and people should begin with the Chronicle. Photos were scavenged from backroom and basement files by photo-historians, Carol Bell and Hilda Grose. Publisher, Betty Dilley found a forgotten box of photos deep in her closet. Photos were solicited and history written around photos that "connected" old families with modern ones, gave details to photos which told why they were important, which in turn made the book twice as interesting, twice as valuable.

The Complete Line of The Akro Agate Co. Manufacturer of Akro Agate Marbles, Juvenile Glass Tea Sets The Complete Line of The Akro Agate Co. Manufacturer of Akro Agate Marbles, Juvenile Glass Tea Sets
By Roger and Claudia Hardy, is not only a collector's catalogue but a history of the Akro Agate Company of Clarksburg, WV. The company was formed in Akron, Ohio by Dr. George T. Rankin, Gilbert C. Marsh and Horace C. Hill. On March 23, 1911 they applied for the "Akro Agate" trademark which was registered in August of the same year. After a couple of years showing success, they decided to purchase a larger building and expand their operation. In late 1914, the company moved to Clarksburg, WV. Much of the success of Akro Agate can be attributed to their ability to capitalize on automation and the changing world markets between the two world wars. The original patent enabled Akro to mass produce glass marbles cheap enough to corner the world market. Akro continued to produce marbles, ashtrays and small containers, children's dishes, and powder jars until 1946 when cheap plastics and metal toy dishes became cheaper to produce than glass. By 1949 they decided to close and stop production. On April 24, 1951 they had a final auction sale and sold everything. Roger and Claudia Hardy are avid collectors and historians of Akro Agate. 135 pages. Softbound. Catalog HC7950-RCH1. $15.00; Price List. HC-7950RCH2. $10.00
